'Facecrook' site to help NJ sheriff find fugitives

Lists, photos of wanted criminals on warrants will allow residents to report on them

Associated Press

HACKENSACK, N.J.  — A New Jersey sheriff's office has a new website that's looking for arrests instead of friends.

"Facecrook" features the names, photos and last locations of fugitives wanted by the Bergen County Sheriff's Office. The site creates a map and users can send anonymous tips to help authorities apprehend those wanted on everything from failure to pay child support to committing murder.

Inspector Mickey Bradley tells The Record newspaper he came up with the idea about a year ago and bought the Facecrook address for $17.
